Rolls Royce’s Dalgety Bay plant in Fife has been awarded a £13 million share of a £235 million Ministry of Defence (MoD) contract.

The site will be responsible for providing power and propulsion equipment for the new Royal Navy carriers – HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.

“This is welcome news for employees at Dalgety Bay,” said John Nicholson, managing director of the site. “We’re now working with our suppliers with a view to starting manufacture onsite early next year.”
